Today:This should be an interesting day as an active pattern of monsoon moisture continues to stream into the Western Slope. Rain looks more widespread and heavier downpours are expected. A Flash Flood Watch will continue and upgrades should be expected for areas that receive heavy amounts of rain during the afternoon and evening hours. These rain showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue into Wednesday morning. Mostly cloudy with mild afternoon temperatures below the seasonal average, Grand Junction should be stuck in the middle 80s, Montrose decreasing toward the lower 80s and Gunnison should be in the middle 70s.
Extended: Monsoon moisture will remain throughout the week and that will mean a chance of showers and thunderstorms each and every afternoon. Temperatures will shake out of the 80s and climb back to the 90s by Friday and through the weekend.
